Flood-Prone Louisiana to Get $234M to Move Village, Control Stormwater

 


In a nod to the threat Louisiana faces from flooding, the federal government is sending $233.8 million in grants to Louisiana to relocate a coastal American-Indian village, prevent damage from hurricanes and make a suburban slice of New Orleans better at handling stormwaters.

The funds are part of a $1 billion package the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced to make the nation more resilient in the face of disasters.
